Thanks for this - very interesting.
Maybe we could help them with publicity ?
(But not the kind they want.)
I'm copying in (bcc:) Zurich people but Zurich really seems to have fizzled
out, hardly anyone attended the last event we had (IAW).
I think something is broken here...

Hope you are doing alright!
I just discovered this post on Facebook, on the site of the student group
The JNF is having a concert in Zürich to celebrate its birthday....the
concert is on the 5th of june, in the Kaufleuten. Maybe this is something
that would interest BDS Zürich? Could you forward it to your group?
Have a nice weekend!
Concert by the Swiss branch of the Keren Kayemeth Leisraël - Jewish
National Fund (KKL-FNJ)
In case you still have a doubt, this is a quote from the JNF's response to
the "Challenging the Prohibition on Arab Citizens of Israel from Living on
Jewish National Fund Land"-petition in 2004: "The JNF is not the trustee of
the general public in Israel. Its loyalty is given to the Jewish people in
the Diaspora and in the state of Israel... The JNF, in relation to being an
owner of land, is not a public body that works for the benefit of all
citizens of the state. The loyalty of the JNF is given to the Jewish people
and only to them is the JNF obligated. The JNF, as the owner of the JNF
land, does not have a duty to practice equality towards all citizens of the
state." (Eve Spangler, Understanding Israel/Palestine: Race, Nation, and
Human Rights in the Conflict, Springer, p. 91.)
